You Can Panic: Starbucks Is Raising Coffee Prices By 1 Percent


Though coffee commodity costs are in decline, Starbucks Corp. announced that they will be raising prices of select beverages by 1 percent. So if you’re a heavy Starbucks drinker, you might want to set a little more money aside.

While not all drinks will cost more, some will rise anywhere between 5 cents to 2o cents. Fans of simple brewed coffees will have to pay an additional 10 cents for a small or large cup.

However, the prices for the more popular cold drinks are said to stay the same. Because Frappuccinos are expensive enough. Expect to see the changes at locations across the nation.

Starbucks locations in Seattle, the company’s home state, will face a 3.5 percent increase.

Sorry, Seattle.


Kettle Brand Chips: 40% Less Fat 40% Less Fun?

Back when Light Mayo came around, the world was up in arms. But then everyone realized it tasted pretty much the same, and we didn’t breath as hard going up a flight of stairs. Now Kettle Brand Sea Salt Potato Chips is putting out a 40% reduced fat product.

While it probably won’t taste the same as a bag with the full fat content, it’s pretty sure to taste just as close. There is, however, a 45-milligram increase in the sodium content as a trade off to the fat reduction. So I guess slimming down means raising blood pressure. A small sacrifice, but I guess a fair one in the name of health.

It’s worth trying at least one bag, don’t you think?
